In an effort to ensure equitable improvements in the quality of life for African American residents in Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Black Elected Officials Coalition (PBEOC) released a 61-page Pittsburgh Peace and Justice Initiative report Thursday outlining ways to accomplish just that. 

The coalition, consisting of state Representatives Ed Gainey (D-Sheridan) and Jake Wheatley (D-Hill District), Allegheny County Councilman DeWitt Walton (District 10) and Pittsburgh City Councilmen Rev. Ricky Burgess (District 9) and Daniel Lavelle (District 6), came together to examine and measure six-key areas of quality of life: public safety, affordable housing, family outcomes, business and organizations, education, and employment.
